Cliff from Cliff & Roma's is the king of the lake and catches Lake Trout like you and I breath.

I tried really hard to get info on Cat Track and Cliff & Roma's. The only information I could find was from the Rusty Myers website. Savant is a relatively big lake at 31,000 acres. I am not sure how accessible it is from the highway, but I don't think very. Definitely be interesting place to fish.

North Star Lodge. Very close to Dryden. Total drive for is about about 45 min from Dryden. Last 7 miles down a dirt gravel road. Only resort on the lake. Camp hold about 70. There is enough water and spots, you don't have to see another boat unless you want to. Clean cabins, with modern with kitchens/baths. Power available on the large docks. Great owners who will put you in fish. I have only fished there once and it was a great experience. I would go back in a minute. There is another camp with a dock that is 17 miles up river. Not much crossover from one area to the other, as you would drive by great fishing just to get to great fishing. The two camps are owned by the same family. We fished the " goon" one year, but our experience at North Star was infinitely better. Walleye, large pike, perch, smallmouth all available. Lots of water, and lots of spots, so your never crowded out.

Default Lac Seul 👍

Not sure what you mean by "Big" Walleyes, but we have been fishing the NW end of Lac Seul just South of Ear Falls for 12 years. It is a very large lake with many areas to fish. The walleye fishing is awesome for numbers & size! The average size fat walleye we catch are 20-26". We have caught several 27 1/2", 28s 29 & a 32". The slot is 18-21" & resorts encourage all walleye over 18" be released. It becomes a challenge to catch small enough fish to keep & eat because they are all too big! There are also large northern pike to catch too. There are several good drive to resorts on this area of the lake. Lac Seul Lodge, Onaway Resort, Fisherman's Cove, Evergreen Resort, Goose Bay Resort, Whitewing Resort, Gawley's Resort, CherRob Resort, Timberlane Resort & Gold Pines Resort. Check them out & good luck planning your next trip!

6 months to go and the count down is on to our return trip to Lac Seul! 😁❤️🎣

With the exception of the Great Lakes/Bay of Quinte, that's as good as it gets for trophy Walleye fishing in Ontario.

Agree. We have been fishing this area for the past 19 years and have 3 trips booked for next summer. We fish out of Whitewing Resort. Check it out.

Actually Lake Savant is 90,000 plus acres of very interesting fishery. Without a doubt probably my favorite. Even over Lac Seul. Mostly because of the ease of fishing Savant. Fish size is comparable. Numbers are better on LS and the shot of an over 30" walleye are better on LS. The average sized walleye is larger on Lake Savant though. It's a pounds of fish vs numbers of fish per day thing.

Cliff & Roma's and Cat Track seem to be word of mouth.

There is no road access into Lake Savant. The closest to that is by using Wildewoods camp. They have a small parking lot just off the highway and pick up their customers at the parking lot in a special build Ford van and trailer for the ride to camp. It's not an easy ride and the five plus mile ride takes an hour or so. They are using an old camp access trail that is marginal even for an ATV. Wildewood used to use a Hagland tracked vehicle, but wore it out and parts scarcity was a problem. Also, getting someone half qualified to fix it was also a problem. The Ford van should be easier to maintain and get parts for, but I can't imagine it lasting many years. Long ago when the camp was a church camp and the last owner and his brother bought it, they brought guests in via the trail using farm type hayracks and pulling it with an old Detroit diesel log skidder. I've seen pictures of the setup and it looked pretty rough to me.

Try searching "Troy and Penny's bait shop" in Savant Lake (town and mailing address). I think Troy is Cliff's son and both Cat Track and Cliff & Roma's are owned by their families and located next to each other in a fairly protected bay.

All these camps are priced about the same. Two are Flyin and one is trail in.

I'm told that the MNR will not anyone anyone access the lake other than camp trails, air or Wildewoods limited use trail. Other camps surely have winter roads and can perhaps access their camps via ATV sometimes in the summer months. I don't know any of that for fact though. Just an assumption on my part. You really need to talk to the camp owners themselves.
